Low Carb Pizza Crust: The Power of Cauliflower

Those of you who’ve been on low carb diets such as Atkins, Keto or South Beach may already be familiar with the glorious cauliflower pizza crust. But for those who haven’t yet come across this diet miracle, here’s a great recipe for you!


2 teaspoons garbanzo flour
1 cup cauliflower, cooked, riced (see below)
1 egg
1 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese (grated)
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Toppings of choice

How to rice cauliflower:

Using a food processor, process fresh cauliflower until it is the size of rice grains, either using the plain steel blade or the shredder blade. Alternatively, you can shred it with a hand-held grater.

Microwave it in a covered dish for 8-10 minutes. Don’t add water- just let the moisture in the cauliflower do the work.


Pre-heat oven to 450F.

Spray a cookie sheet with 1-calorie non stick spray.

Mix the cauliflower, flour, egg and cheese.

Press into pan in a round shape.

Sprinkle on the herbs.

Bake 12- 15 minutes (15-20 if you double the recipe).

Remove from oven add sauce and toppings.

Bake until cheese melts.
